I am a research professor in the Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology at North Carolina State University where I coordinate a program in Insect Rearing Education and Research.  I recently published the book, Insect Diets: Science and Technology 2nd Edition from CRC Press.  I teach online courses in insect rearing and have taught 5 face-to-face courses in rearing to try to help people interested in producing insects to become more aware of the science and technology involved in propagation of high quality, reliable insects. I am currently finishing a new book on Design, Operation, and Control of Insect Rearing Systems also from CRC Press.
